This is my second movie review and I'm thrilled to talk about the xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. My last movie review was not satisfactory but I am super pumped about this one.


Today, my boyfriend and I went to see the Triple X movie. We were both fans of Vin Diesel and excited to watch this movie. Well, let's say I got sucked into the show the entire time. I normally don't really enjoy stunts that look fake but whenever Vin Diesel does it, he does it quite nicely.

I didn't understand some of the concept of this movie because I've never watched the old one before so I don't know the timeline on what happened previously. According to IMDB, the story line is that Xander Cage was supposed to be dead but he is set on collision with warrior Xiang(Donnie Yen) and his team to recover the pandora box, known to be the very powerful weapon. The plot line to me is pretty simple and easy to catch up since there is no proper back story. The story to me is that Xander Cage was called back to look for Pandora's Box and he and Xiang needed to race to get Pandora's Box.

Visuals to me is pretty normal. The things that stood out to me the most are the action stunts. Knowing Vin Diesel and Donnie Yen, they really can perform a great stunts and makes you suck into the movie. Others, pretty normal. There are some jokes that really cracked me up. All the actors preformed really well though. It's just that Vin Diesel and Donnie Yen just shined a lot in this movie. I really liked the Deepika's jokes. She is funny and can perform some action stunts pretty well. For Nina Dobrev, I find she doesn't fit with the team. My boyfriend told me that Nina is like a fried egg in the ice cream haha. Don't get me wrong, I like the way Nina performed in this show. It's just that her role doesn't fit with the team since she cannot fight properly when in danger.

Sound system wise, I really liked the soundtracks in this show. If you want to listen to the soundtracks, you can go to this site and listen to them. The song that I really enjoyed is by The Americanos called In My Foreign.


Overall, it is really good show to me. I couldn't understand all the hate this show is getting but for me, this is a good show to watch if you have nothing to watch or you really liked the first movie. My rating for this movie is 7 out of 10 because firstly, I love Vin Diesel and Donnie Yen, secondly, you can watch this show without watching the prequel and thirdly, the action stunts are really good and the music is dope.
